Normal Music have a very nice take on glitch, as evidenced on Brev (Zero Moon 3" CD), their way of subverting the autonomy of beat regularity, as well as their approach to the dubly layering of various analogue and digital noises, put them far ahead of a largely sleepy herd. The basics here get so cracked at times that I imagine this'd be capable of breaking people's bones on the dance floor if played at the right time and volume. Cool! - Bryon Coley, Wire, August 2004 normalmusic.org Topic: Clicks+Cuts Source: www.zeromoon.com
"...listen to trident at night. In a way the tracks are 'nocturnes' made out of my melancholic mood. I love the tranquility of night hours when the city sleeps, when the mind gets more and more calm. This is the right moment to switch off thinking back and forth, to leave past things and don't care about next steps. This mood of "open-eyed dreaming" being awake and unconscious at the same time is the base for my music. There are no pictures, visions, or structures I want to... favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 3 reviews ) Topic: clicks & cuts
Mike Berk makes you groove with an imminently danceable 6 track maxi-single. Everyone at the slapart office just can't stop listening to his "idiom neutral reformed."

Immovable Movers My 'book of stones' started with an unarranged collection of different stones which were accidentally found or bought and kept as 'jewels'. The more the collection grew the wish boosted to bring them into a logical order, to catalogue them. But with each additional stone my assurance rose that it is impossible to summarize the endless variety of nature and its plentifulness. My fascination of stones based upon the awareness that this preciousness has an age of millions of... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 4 reviews ) Topics: Experimental, Minimalism, Clicks+Cuts

This band split up forming Audio das poly (collective ambient music from Argentina & Spain) & ESPECTRO (germanish electronic music from the Andes!). In 1997 an ESPECTRO full length CD was released by Daniel Melero (mythical non-musician from Buenos Aires). Briefly after that, his independent music career started under LUMEN, MAZZA & REMOT names.

Moments Of Urban Calmness On one hand a 'Free Port' is the free trading zone of a harbour, where goods are being discharged, stocked, and again shipped. An area in which you sometimes can find a calmness within the daily unrest, but in which you may also feel a little bit lost. on the other hand you may read 'Free Port' as an open terminal of a computer, where you can plug-in other devices in order to widen your operative possibilities, or to get more information - actually, the real point of... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Ambient, Clicks+Cuts
Through our association with online music juggernaut NOTYPE we dug up this release from the flatlands of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, which apparently is somewhere in Canada. JON VAUGHN is a young artist who presently resides there. His work addresses the collaboration/juxtaposition of 'different' concepts, aesthetics, and media, approached from both a critical and personal perspective. As a result, this 6-track, 24-minute tour de force runs the gamut of electronic music idioms yet remarkably... Topics: Clicks+Cuts, Abstract, Experimental
The Infinite Process Of Absorbing The monotonous noise of bypassing cars drags me away from sleep and into another day. Time doesn't exist, there are just processes and my whole life seems to be tied to an infinite process like the neverending looping sound of the cars outside my small apartment. I open the door, however unable to open the walls of isolation that seperate me from mankind. Sitting down beside the road, I feel the wet grass with my fingers. I peel off some leaves and gaze at them... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topics: Ambient, IDM, Clicks+Cuts
By day, Sebastien Roux is a programmer at the IRCAM lab in Paris. In his spare time, he puts together beautiful, low-key pieces on laptop and hand-built electronics. Fragments of piano and guitar are looped, tweaked, processed and overlaid into a rippling pool of sound. Sebastien has played in the UK a few times in the past year, and has gone down a storm every time.

Stories In Front Of Your Eyes In modern society, people more and more tend to see technology as something given. Because of the huge degree of specialization they are unable to understand the manufacturing processes and therefore unable to connect to any of the things they eat, wear or use in everyday life. Many of them are involved in production of one certain item, but they do not care whether they are getting their money for producing a tire or a coffee cup. Since nobody cares of his result,...

As Motion, Chris Coode records compelling minimalist sound constructions. Recent releases on 12k, L-ne and Fat Cat place him at the forefront of the microsound scene. As Recon, he departs from the Motion template to pursue a stripped-down, dubbed-out techno reminiscent of the Basic Channel and Chain Reaction canon. This set for slow sound system, recorded on a cold February afternoon in London, seamlessly combines both styles. Check out the HighpointLowlife release 'White Label' for more more...

Everything started when Sky Diaries, the original EP by young fellow Fred Baty a.k.a. Crepusculum, was released at 12rec. in December 2006. It was a five song EP comprised solely of incredible acoustic music, composed with a guitar and some decent electronic enhancements. His music left me completely stunned and I immediately thought that the pureness of Fred's guitar-play would be a fantastic inspiration in the hands of electronic musicians. From both Zymogen and 12rec., several names came up.... Topics: ambient, guitar, glitch, sound art, minimal, clicks & cuts, acustic, electronic, emotional,...
